4 Jet Car Drag Race
Under the definition of "awesome" should be a picture of 4-jet cars racing!
NMRA/NMCA All Star Nationals at ZMax Dragway in Charlotte, NC ended the
night by lighting up ZMax's 4 drag lanes with the fire and the thunder of 4
jet turbine drag cars creating an estimated 24,000 HP on one track! The
Embry Riddle dragster takes off and runs a 5-second quarter.

The MTT Turbine Superbike, also known as the Y2K Turbine Superbike, is a
wheel-driven motorcycle powered by a turboshaft engine, created by Ted McIntyre of
Marine Turbine Technologies. The machine is powered by a
Rolls-Royce-Allison Model 250 gas turbine producing 320 hp (240 kW) at
52,000 rpm. Unlike some earlier jet-powered motorcycles, where a massive
jet engine provided thrust to push the motorcycle, the turboshaft engine on this model drives the rear
wheel via a two-speed gearbox.

The engines used in the motorcycles are second-hand, having reached the
FAA-mandated running time limit, after which they have to be rebuilt,
regardless of condition. To get around the problem of procuring the
kerosene usually used in turbine engines, the engine is also able to use
diesel, or jet fuel.
In 2008, MTT released the "Streetfighter," another jet-bike with a more
powerful 420 hp (310 kW) engine. See all our videos on the channel
